There’s just something so cozy and comforting about a big bowl – yes, I have to have it in a bowl – of super savory saucy beef mixed with corn and peas topped off with a huge pile of creamy mashed potatoes.



But wait! You’re probably thinking to yourself right now, shepherd’s pie isn’t made with beef. And you’re right!Shepherd’s pie is traditionally made with lamb, but beef is just as tasty – if not more! Technically what I love eating is called a cottage pie, but tomato, to-mah-to, am I right? Whatever you want to call it, a super savory meaty ragu topped off with creamy mashed potatoes is a comfort food classic, one that you’ll come back to time and time again.





Shepherd’s pie vs cottage pie

Purists will say that shepherd’s pie is made with lamb and cottage pie is made with beef, but in America, most people refer to cottage pie (which is made with beef) as shepherd’s pie. This particular iteration is made with beef so it’s technically a cottage pie!Try this recipe for a classic lamb version.



  1. Cook the potatoes.Start off by cooking peeled potatoes in salted water. While they’re happily simmering away, you can multitask and make the pie filling.
  2. Cook the aromatics.轻轻煮一些洋葱,大蒜,胡萝卜,芹菜,直到柔软和嫩。
  3. Cook the beef.Add the beef to the pan and cook, breaking up, until cooked through. Sprinkle on some flour – this helps thicken up the base of the pie – and then add some beef stock, tomato paste, herbs, and a splash of soy sauce for an extra bit of umami. Scoop everything into a casserole dish and set aside.
  4. Mash the potatoes.到目前为止,你的土豆应该是嫩的。沥干它们然后捣碎。我喜欢在唐酸奶油中搅拌。您还可以添加乳酪奶酪的奶酪般的马铃薯上衣!
  5. Make the pie.Finish off the pie by spooning the potatoes onto the meat and evenly spreading them off. Top the potatoes off with a bit of butter and it’s ready to go in the oven.
  6. Bake.Bake the casserole (place it on a baking sheet to catch any drips) until the tops are golden brown and crispy and enjoy!

We’re making a classic shepherd’s/cottage pie with ground beef, onions, garlic, celery, carrots, corn, peas, herbs, potatoes, butter, sour cream,and just a touch of soy sauce and tomato paste to bring everything together并给出馅饼的额外推动味道。


When I was making this, Mike asked me, why the heck do you bake it when all the ingredients are cooked? That is a good question! I do it because I like the tops to be browned and crispy, but if you don’t want to wait or don’t care for crispy potato tops, you can serve this up in a bowl with a scoop of the saucy meat with mashed potatoes on top. In fact, I’ve seen lots of shepherd’s pie served like this in pubs and restaurants.



Make ahead

Assemble the shepherd’s pie completely (don’t bake it) and then cover it tightly and pop it into the fridge. You can make this up to 2 days in advance. When you want to serve, bake it in a 375°F oven until bubbly and crisp.
